Obama-Immelt Pact, allowing government to control our water heaters

 

GE ’stimulated’ by $300 million water heater rebate

By Steve Milloy

October 2, 2009

Everyday seems to bring new revelations about federal stimulus money earmarked for the Obama-blessed General Electric. Yesterday it was smart meters, today’s scheme involves water heaters.

GE will be selling water heaters that, as described by SmartGridToday,

  …lets utilities regulate the use by sending signals wirelessly to them from smart meters.

According to the GE press release,

  Additionally, the smart appliance qualifies for Energy Star rebate programs… In July, the U.S. Department of Energy announced the availability of nearly $300 million in funding for state-run Energy Star rebate programs as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act stimulus plan.

The Obama-Immelt Pact (rentseeking-for-lobbying) is corrupt enough but it’s made positively execrable by its ends — allowing the government (through regulated utilities) to control our water heaters.

Jeffrey Immelt is the CEO of GE.  GE owns NBC and Universal NBC.  NBC even has Obama paraphernalia in their NBC Store. 

Jeffrey Immelt is on the Federal Reserve Board.

Obama wants to control our “smart grid”.

The “Smart Grid” wants to control our water heaters.

Does anyone else see a problem with this?

GE is connected to: U.S. Climate Action Partnership.

Note: Excelon Corporation (Chicago)

Also the box that states: “Blueprint for Climate Change Bill”

Obama states he is against Corporate “Fat Cats”……yet has ties to Immelt, GE and the U.S. Climate Action Partnership?

It is ALL about POWER…….and MONEY.

 

Has anyone else noticed that what has been released in “Stimulus Bill” funds HAVE STAYED IN WASHINGTON,D.C.?  Federal jobs “saved” or “created.”

The “New and Improved” Government Rebates (Cash for Clunkers) and now GE water heater programs “Stimulate” only those that backed Obama in his presidential campaign.

And NOW they are talking about a SECOND Stimulus Bill?

 

How about a NATIONAL boycott of GE?  Send a message to Washington,D.C. “We the People” have had ENOUGH!

  1. Wow, I hear you! GE is running the world with its partners, the US and World Bank. And their plans to open coal mines in India and China are not green!
